The XTERRA North Carolina 15K/5K Trail Run Series Comes to Beech Mountain on July 27

July 9, 2013. Trail runners of all ages and abilities are invited to Beech Mountain on Saturday, July 27, for the XTERRA North Carolina 15K/5K Trail Run. 

This is a great off-road running experience for any runner wishing to “ditch the city” and traverse a mountaintop of single track and double track trails.

Although the race starts on pavement in the town of Beech Mountain, it quickly heads off road and into the woods. The course is comprised of varied terrain including rolling hills, uphill climbs, rooty forests and some technical sections. 

The race is organized by Dirty Spokes Productions of Dacula, Ga. Dirty Spokes produces trail races, mountain bike races and off-road duathalons across the Southeast. 

Medals will also be awarded in the following male and female age divisions: 14-under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 and 70+. 

Entry fee for the 15K is $35 per person through July 18 and $40 from July 19-26. Race day entry is $45. Entry fee for the 5K is $25 per person through July 18 and $30 from July 19-26. Race day registration is $45. 

Beech Mountain is a ski resort town, so plenty of lodging is available. Additionally, runners and their families are eligible for a 15 percent discount on lodging at Pinnacle Inn Resort.
